Rumors of the actor’s alleged demise gained traction on Monday after a ‘R.I.P. Michael Caine’ Facebook page attracted nearly one million of ‘likes’. Those who read the ‘About’ page were given a believable account of the British actor’s passing:

At about 11 a.m. ET on Monday (June 05, 2023), our beloved actor Michael Caine passed away. Michael Caine was born on March 14, 1933 in London. He will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page.

Where as some trusting fans believed the post, others were immediately skeptical of the report, perhaps learning their lesson from the huge amount of fake death reports emerging about celebrities over recent months. Some pointed out that the news had not been carried on any major British network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of an actor of Michael Caine's stature would be major news across networks.

A recent poll conducted for the Celebrity Post shows that a large majority (77%) of respondents think those Michael Caine death rumors are not funny anymore.
